Coffeenut under the criminal statutes in effect today the sale of marijuana is still against the lawRead More in NJ so the police actually were minding their own business. I have been told that often the police start with pot buys and then turn those sellers into informants who carry the undercovers up to those that provide more dangerous drugs to the public. That seems to make sense. Perhaps your emotions are a little too influenced by your desire to see the substance made legal? You are aware that there is a problem in NJ at this point with people often dying due to narcotics, right?
Coffeenut April 23, 2014 at 10:35 am
Marynary yes it still is illegal in NJ. It shouldn't be. And my wanting it legalized is a non-issue.Read More My point is, let us look at what caused the cop to get shot. He was out there in a parking lot trying to "trick" someone into breaking the law. Someone could have been arrested and had their life ruined because of this cop. All over a harmless medicinal plant. The cop, albeit doing his "job", was out there looking for trouble. You get what you give in life. Hard for me to feel sorry for someone who was shot while he was trying to arrest and ruin someone else's life.

@Marynary - how bout showing a little respect... You call Grace a "Patch Airhead." REALLYRead More !!!!! I gotta tell you you're soooooo wrong - Grace speaks her mind on everything... I don't always agree with her but that is what makes the world go round. I have followed Grace' comments on numerous subjects for a long time and have always found her to be very level headed, intelligent, fair, and yes sometimes she tries to defuse things with humor or when something or someone trips her funny switch. Perhaps if we could all lighten up, take a deep breath and smile a little more we'd all be better off.

Now Obama wants to release tens of thousands of 'non violent' drug offenders from prisons, bypassingRead More court imposed sentences. Unless those people have jobs waiting for them, not yet likely in this economy, one can easily envision further difficulties for the citizens of Newark and other inner cities.
Marynary April 23, 2014 at 10:15 am
Joey Joe I make no comments when Grace contributes to a thread with honest meaningful postings.Read More However with 8100 postings I find that at least 4000 of them are a succession of one liners with other airheads that alter the course of conversation about the topics. It is a news effort here, not facebook or twitter. 8100 postings! That is about 4X more than any other super frequent poster. You have only posted 1815 times.

Speedy trial? Define speedy. Charles Manson and company committed the Tate/LaBianca murders inRead More 1969. The trial wasn’t until two years later. It took over a year before Jack Ruby went on trial for shooting Oswald. And the entire nation saw him do that on TV. The infamous Boston Strangler was caught in early 1964 but wasn’t sentenced until 1967. Its only on Law & Order that it goes from commission of the crime to sentencing in an hour.

First you have to call.
vic April 16, 2014 at 12:33 am
in that incident several years ago, if I recall correctly, the suspect was already under arrest whenRead More he pulled out the gun. it was more a case of the suspect not being properly search after he was apprehended.
Richard Jacoby April 16, 2014 at 08:07 am
Perhaps they should have dropped a fire bomb on the roof and smoked him out. Hell maybe they shouldRead More handle every call this way, if the house has a gun in it. I totally forgot that in NJ it's illegal to own guns. I haven't seen any report that their was any threat made to authorities at all. The girlfriend said he threatened her and this is a common practice in domestic augments, because it's a sure fire way to get the guy arrested. It doesn't appear they ascertained the situation at all before going loco. Must be a slow winter for the cops. Unless the author is a horrible reporter, the only one brandishing of a weapon was law enforcement and they felt the need for automatic assault rifles. Basically, I could report that you or anyone else threaten me with a gun and the police wouldn't investigate. They would simply call in the militia. They had the guy in custody in a little over an hour after the first call. How much time does it take to mobilize county swat and hostage negotiators? Trust me, if the guy had made threats or brandished a weapon, the cops would have released that info. He was taken into custody without incident means exactly that.
Will Cochrane April 17, 2014 at 10:10 am
OCnjOC, that incident happened AT THE POLICE STATION because of an improper search. Coming into anyRead More home with an arrest warrant for a possibly armed suspect is going to have cops making sure they see hands. Your scenario would never happen if handcuffs and proper frisks were used. Still doesn't justify military tactics. Call the negotiators just in case? So if I have my music up too loud and a neighbor calls the police should I expect hostage negotiators? You know, just in case? He was the only one in the house! She left the residence and called the police from a neighbors house! It's pretty obvious that if he was violent he would not have let her leave or the incident would have been taking place at the neighbor's house or on the street. This is cut and dry a major show of force by a municipal PD. This should bother anyone who was alive to remember what a neighborhood police officer was 40 years ago.

Clean OC is that a reference to your job? are you a trash collector? If so, I commend you forRead More taking trash out of the cans and putting it in the truck good job!
Angela April 16, 2014 at 07:50 am
Wow. Kathy that was hurtful and rude. I hope those are not judgements you are trying to instill inRead More your students! Honestly this is the first time I've ever commented on Patch and it's been interesting. From now on I think I'll keep my opinions to myself! Have a good day everyone - be kind to each other.
Kathy O'Connor April 16, 2014 at 10:40 am
Angela - I think you are confused - you certainly are confused when you try and justify stealing byRead More saying small business owners don't have pensions and pay more taxes than anyone else (small business owners pay taxes on income, just like everyone else) I always try to instill kindness in my students but at the same time, I try to let them know to stand up for themselves against hypocritical phonies and that stealing is wrong and when you break the law, you have to pay a price - (don't worry I doubt Clean OC is a trash collector - it was a joke)

oceancity4 me April 5, 2014 at 09:13 pm
Beachin: That's a really broad statement, implying that all cash businesses should be worriedRead More because they have been skimming cash. I'm sure some have but I believe others have not. Singling out Piccini's by name is rude. Sounds like your faming their character.

The TMZ video I just watched showed what it looked like to be Ray Rice pulling his drunk fiance outRead More of an elevator.
